The Integrated Care Fellowship offered at the UW Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences is a unique opportunity to learn how to provide integrated care through delivery of consultation to non-mental health settings (such as primary care), provision of telepsychiatry, and leadership to improve systems of care.
The fellowship offers up to five positions per year. The one-year fellowship includes a combination of clinical experiences, training in integrated care implementation, and integrated care scholarship.
Training activities focus on:
- Collaborative Care
- Telepsychiatry/ Rural Experiences
- Implementation, Quality Improvement and Using Data in Integrated Care
- Scholarly Project (Education, Research, or Policy)
- Cross training with the Department's ACGME-accredited Fellowships
- Year-long didactic series on integrated care
This fellowship experience focuses on developing both clinical and leadership skills to deliver population mental health. There is an emphasis on how to leverage psychiatric expertise through working with other providers. The rich integrated care opportunities allow the fellows to have some opportunity to customize their experience to focus on specific populations (such as Pediatrics or Perinatal) or clinical conditions (such as Substance Use Disorders).
